We are a short course provider with for example 10 students in a 5 hour class.
In our paper-based assessments, we have checkboxes that assessors marks against an observation item to help give context to the assessment (which ASQA requires). That is, so it's not a 'tick & flick'. However given the short course nature of these courses, we need to make this as quick and simple as possible for the assessors (i.e. written feedback for each observation item for each student is too time consuming).
For example, if the observation item is 'donning PPE' - we then have a list of PPE (personal protective equipment) that the student could possibly put on (e.g. goggles, hi-vis vest, hard hat etc). The assessor simply ticks that relevant ones used in the assessment. This saves the assessor time in writing comments for each student or taking copious amounts of photos and uploading against each student.
We request this sort of functionality (e.g. checkboxes) be added as functionality to the items in the observation checklist assessment type.
